Earlier today I posted a several days worth of McDermott’s ledger entries in an attempt to catch up, but it will take some time. I wondered if the readers want to see every day of the ledger? Let me know what you think…
November 19, 1883 was a pretty busy day at McDermott’s store. I don’t know what it means when he records “by cash”. Are the customers being paid out for credits on their accounts? Or is it a cash advance? Does someone know the answer?
Does that say “1 D Hog” that Patrick Langan sold to Mr. McDermott? I wonder if Mr. Langan was paid a good price?
The second page of the day’s transactions shows the purchase of hog from Mr. Hilla, as well as the sale of many sewing items to various customers.
What is the most interesting item to you in the ledger for November 19, 1883?
